to the pentagon. >> mu afghanistan policy questions. >> terrorism has not gone away. it has increased. >> brit hume's analysis of the president's economic message. arapahoe county is largely suburban area southeast of denver, home to aerospace engineers and business managers and other professionals. there are some very affluent areas but for the most part it's the upper tier of the middle class. in 2008, barack obama carried this county by more than 35,000 votes. four years before that, george w. bush carried it by more than 9,000. the unemployment rate here is the national average. but it is below the state unemployment rate. another interesting stat about arapahoe county, 54% of the registered voters are women. one of the widest gender gaps in any county in colorado. which is why the obama campaign is hitting this area hard with campaign ads about women's issues.

of the government of the united states of america that is worse than acquisition than the pentagon who is famous for massive waste and cost overrun is the faa? what is wrong with your procurement process and how are we going to fix it? >> as you have heard, we would have in retrospect the eram should have been structured differently. i would tell you that we got the contractors attention at the ceo level to get the changes that we needed quickly. the profile of the kind of work the faa does is high risk and sometimes it is a technological leading edge, sometimes the bleeding edge and it is that kind of project especially when it is this complex is likely to have to sit back and delay. when you take the six separate technologies that constitute nextgen in the interplay and interaction between them it is an order of magnitude more complex. that is not an excuse but it puts a premium on better project management skills and understanding the risk from the beginning and we are very much focused on that. >> mr. churn and one other question. i read something yesterday about potentially using the meridi
